Organizations have gained significant benefit from virtualizing servers and storage environments, and now face the daunting task of deploying new network architectures to keep pace. Software-defined networking holds significant promise to deliver a new network architecture that is abstracted and virtualized; however, organizations would be well served to learn from previous efforts to virtualize other domains in order to avoid making the same mistakes. Riverbed and VMware joined forces to help eliminate those problems and make it easier to deploy VXLAN overlay networks in highly virtualized data centers by integrating application-aware network performance management software and vSphere 5.1.
